In 1928, in Egypt, a strange device is found by an expedition. In the present days, the outcast linguist Dr. Daniel Jackson is invited by a mysterious woman to decipher an ancient hieroglyph in a military facility. Soon he finds that the device was developed by an advanced civilization and opens a portal to teletransport to another planet. Dr. Jackson is invited to join a military team under the command of Colonel Jonathan 'Jack' O'Neil that will explore the new world. They find a land that recalls Egypt and humans in a primitive culture that worship and are slaves to Ra, the God of the Sun. But soon they discover the secret of the mysterious "stargate".Written by

When Professor Langford first sees the stargate in the opening sequence, he exclaims "Herregud! Hva er det?". This means "My God! What is that?" in Norwegian, Erik Holland's native language. See more »
The three "moons of Abydos" seen above the pyramid are obviously images of Earth's moon, merely re-sized and rotated relative to each other. See more »
I loved this movie. It captured my attention quickly and kept it throughout the movie.
It's a great ensamble cast and the special effects add to the movie's appeal, rather than BEING the appeal.
The premise is engaging, and gives some very plausible explainations for mysteries that have stumped man for thousands of years. The bad guys are just as engagine as the good guys and that makes the movie all that much more enjoyable.
I would give this movie an 8 out of 10. It's not perfect, but good for a very enjoyable movie night!
